Good coffee?

Good coffee?

After all, you left your baby in the car – at the curb downtown, motor running – to disappear into the coffee shop, way out of sight, to get some. Then you waited in line and chatted a while before wandering back. Really? Your little girl, apparently just beginning to talk, smiled, giggled, waved and […]

The Whiner’s Club

The Whiner’s Club

The Whiner’s Club of Greater Jamestown met on Thursday. We failed to find anything at all to whine about so we wined and dined instead… Hope everybody had a great Thanksgiving. Except we did whine about the whiners who forgot to take the day off from complaining, fault finding and being grumpy. Life is, after […]

Get over it

Get over it

OK, the election is over. There are no more new things to complain or brag about. Nobody on either side has said anything new I haven’t already heard a bazillion times. I just shut down my Facebook page for the next century because, by the sound if it, it will take that long for the […]

Space explorers?

Space explorers?

You don’t work for NASA, so I know you don’t have a license to explore space… especially my space. Please quit crowding me. Why do some people who stand in line at Bigg Boxx stores or grocery markets want to crowd up to my back as if getting a few inches closer to the cashier […]

It’s been a century…

It’s been a century…

That’s right. It’s been at least 100 years now that most homes and businesses have enjoyed the luxury of indoor plumbing. Neither the Jamestown City Hall nor the average working class home in our town still struggles with digging a new hole for the outhouse every spring. So why do some people simply forget to […]

All Bottled Up

All Bottled Up

We all know what a beautiful place this is, the buildings, the landscape, the sunrises, the sunsets, the lake and all the cars and people enjoying our little corner of the world. It’s easy to forget there might be traffic and you need to watch where you are going!!! While I was out and about […]

I’m way too cool

I’m way too cool

Do shop keepers not look at the weather channel, listen to the weather man or see the forecast? Can no one figure out the air conditioner settings and adjust them for the actual weather we’re having? It’s not a new occurrence – we’ve had autumn in WNY for centuries. It gets a little chilly over […]

All Bottled Up

All Bottled Up

I like a well-kept lawn but two issues just push me to the edge! Please people – think of the time before you start the mower, leaf blower, weed whacker or other machine! Weekdays and Saturdays 9 a.m. is early enough and Sunday could you hold off until about 10? And don’t leave the clippings […]

Let’s get even…

Let’s get even…

Fixing dinner is hard enough but when you have a package of 10 hot dogs and only 8 buns it can be even more challenging! What happens to the left over dogs – does someone eat them plain, do you resort to the bread/roll compromise?? Or do you open a new package of rolls and continue […]

Just drop it…Not!

Just drop it…Not!

Just a few days ago people in a downtown Jamestown business watched in fascination through the storefront window as a driver parked across the street and did something nobody could explain. The driver opened the car door, stood beside the car and threw a handful of stuff – some that blew away, some that splatted […]
